Books
This is the story of Celia Rosser, internationally acclaimed botanical illustrator, who dedicated her life to painting the entire genus of Banksia, the only artist to have done so. Her dedication to the task put her at the centre of the Monash Banksia Poject for twenty-five years and culminated in the production of an extraordinary three-volume florilegium that became one of the great books published in the twentieth century.
